why do people ignore me when I speak?
Even if I do speak quietly SOMETIMES, at times they literally look me in the eyes when I speak and then just ignore me and carry on. I don't understand this shit. Am I that insignificant to them, even at fucking work?
There's nothing more demotivating than this in social situations.
I have the opposite problem- I often can't hear what people are saying at all, it sounds to me like they're mumbling, even if they're not. I'm too scared to get my hearing checked though.
Maybe you actually mumble a lot and everyone else is too awkward to ask you to repeat what you've said more clearly?
Oh okay, thank goodnes- wait, what you say about me?! >:(
I've considered that. There's times I'm almost shouting and it's just met with a weak response and then back to what they were doing again
I have this problem, have genetic shitty hearing, my mom and grandpa have the same problem. Not bad enough where I'm obviously deaf to people but bad enough where I can't hear half of what people are saying especially with high pitched voices. Used to wear hearing aids but they barely helped and they broke and another pair costs $4000 now that I have shitty insurance, plus wearing them would draw attention to me and people would sometimes think I'm wearing a wire when I bought drugs.
I dont like to speak to people. They have way too many questions if you dont dumb it down for them especially fucking engineers, those guys are fucking retarded. If youre saying things in a group and people dont listen its probably cause you always say gay shit and are probably bottom of the totem pole.
I think you're right.
At work i can be extremely pedantic and overly meticulous to avoid fuck ups, which leads to a lot of question, but thats also cos im the new guy. I'd say maybe they hadn't warmed up to me... if it didnt happen in almost all my social groups.
I think the "gay shit" represents my sense of humour, which not everyone enjoys, that's painfully obvious. conversations are usually directed by the people im talking to, with me just throwing a thing or two in, so as to not step on anyones toes.
it's a nice feeling when people respond on queue
